It's fucking wild that after an 11-game losing streak for the Dodgers and a 21-game winning streak for the Tribe, LA still has a better record.

Same, the Indians are peaking at the wrong time.

Remember when the As won 20 in a row and then got bounced in the first round?


Yes, is that the year the Sox beat them or the year the Yankees did with the Jeter play?


The Twins beat them in the Playoffs that year.

Big walk off HR by Eddie Rosario tonight. He's turned into a really good (and clutch) player. The Twins needed the win to stay 2 up on the Angels for the second wild card. Being in the playoff chase with this club has been tons of fun to watch. I just wish they still had Brandan Kinsler at the back end of the bullpen.

And Holy Hell, Cleveland. 21 wins in a row is insane.

I feel the same way about the Brewers (and I can even say I wish we still had Kinsler). This team is fun to watch with its cast of no names. Hell they've been using September call ups as starters in a playoff run.

Heck of a season for the Brew Crew indeed. The difference with the Twins is that this should be just the beginning for an extremely talented and young team.

Oh, and we have Byron Buxton. He just hit another walk off home run for the Twins tonight. And let's not forget that Sano has been out for the last three weeks. He'll be back before the post season and this lineup (which has been mashing all second half) gets that much better. I'm not saying they'll do much in the postseason this year (if they make it) but the future is very bright.

I think it's the best baseball series of games I've ever seen though. I'm still annoyed that Cox took Smoltz out after the 9th.

Obviously I'm biased, but yeah I totally agree. Best WS ever played.

Cox pulled Smoltz during the 8th.

I heard it was Molitor who ironed Buxtons swing out just before he started this hot streak (ditched a leg kick / toe tap, for the more Molitoresque no stride)
The thing that's crazy with the Brewers, Braun, the loan real Veteran of the Brewers, has only played in 89 of 146 games. A free agent from Korea, a couple of players picked up in trades, a waiver claim, and a super utility (Hernan Perez might be the team MVP just for his versatility) player leading a bunch of kids. Gotta love it.
